Unless you’re a car enthusiast, you probably don’t want to spend a lot of free time car shopping, especially as a business owner. As the saying goes, “time is money,” and for entrepreneurs that truly is the case. If you’re not trying to relax, you’re working towards earning a profit with your passion.

If you’re in need of a new car, you’ll want to find it fast so that the search doesn’t cost you valuable profits for the week or so that you spend searching. This is especially threatening for small business owners, as studies have shown that the average car buyer spends almost 15 hours searching for their next vehicle.

So assuming your business ONLY requires eight hours a day, you get a full eight hours of sleep, your commute only takes an hour, and you spend two hours a day for breakfast and dinner, then you’re left with only 6 hours of free time per day. So if you dedicate your entire free time, leaving no room for rest or personal life, then you may find the right vehicle for you in just a few days, but rarely is that the case.

Luckily, technology is catching up with the needs of consumers. In this day and age, you can find your perfect car in a matter of minutes when you utilize the right sites.

Platforms like TrueCar.com enable you to look through thousands of different makes and models so you can find the car that best suits your needs in just a matter of minutes. If you ever find yourself in a pinch like this, remember to utilize AFEUSA as a resource. As an AFEUSA member, you have access to countless tools and TrueCar is just one of them.
